Today is an exploration day. We are looking for opportunities to expand our Rutonde porridge project and have headed out of Rwamagana into the hills.
This week I am staying in Rwamagana, an hour's bus ride to the east of Kigali. The rains seem to have well and trully disappeared and the air has become hot and dusty.
Nyamirambo is known as one of the poorer areas of Kigali and where Mission Rwanda first started work. The main street is a bustling thoroughfare of clothes shops and beauty parlours.
Home for much of this trip will be the Scripture Union rooms in Kigali.
We were visiting some of the children who have been through our porridge project at Rutonde and at one house noticed a plastic pail with a bottle beside it.
An exciting night. Heavy rain on the roof made any effort at sleep futile. The frequent lightning and ear-splitting thunderclaps overhead provided entertainment by way of compensation.
It was good to catch up with old friends at Meg Foundation School last week and meet the four classes of nursery children.
On Monday we visited Eglise Vivant at Kibungo, an hour's bus ride east of Rwamagana and not far from the Tanzanian border.
